I called Property Recovery 911 when the townhouse next door to my rental property caught fire and the firefighters flooded the homes with water. My property was ruined with smoke and water damage. Property Recovery 911 was responsive to my needs while the fire was still being put out. The owner Paul was on the phone with me throughout the whole ordeal and provided every option available to me and how to best handle the situation and get my tenants back into the property. Property Recovery 911 quickly removed all remnants of smoke damage, water damage and any possibility of mold within the property. The owner of the company (Paul) even asked me to accompany him to the wholesale distributor of the smoke and water damage warehouse to go over all of the different options for remediating the smoke damage and removing the smoke smell from the property. I was educated in all of the products and was able to make an informed decision on where to spend my money. My property was completely restored and the tenants were back in the property within 3 weeks. The other surrounding properties were still waiting for contractors to provide estimates so they asked Property Recovery 911 to work on their houses as soon as they were done in my property. I highly recommend Property Recovery 911 because they provide you with all of the information that you need to make the right decisions, they are courteous, they are efficient and they ensure that you are 100% satisfied during and after the work is completed.

I had a bad circulator pump and 3 cracked radiators at one of my rental properties. This needed to be fixed before the tenants moved in. I was also out of town while this work got done. Benny did an amazing job of getting everything fixed, addressing leaks I didn't know of and keeping me updated throughout the process. I've been dealing with contractors for my rental properties for 6 years and this was one of my best experiences. I highly recommend this company.

There are some things in our home that my husband is able to do, and then, there are things that my husband is not experienced in doing. So we called Complete Construction and had them install all new windows in our home, along with french doors and ceramic tile in our kitchen. We wanted to finish our basement, and had them install ceramic tile on the basement floor and paneling on the walls. They did a beautiful job on all of it! My husband and I are very satisfied with the work that was done and we'd recommend Complete Construction and Handyman Services to anyone looking to have projects done in their home.

Mike did a moving out cleaning for me and he was AWESOME. Polite, friendly, thorough and detailed. I've been searching for a cleaning service like this and have gone through many candidates without this much satisfaction. I didn't know my house could get back to this clean! My only regret is that I found him right when we are moving out of the area. If we find ourselves back in his service area, we will absolutely be using 2nd Glance Cleaning and Restoration again!

Kudos to PinoWorks, for a wonderful construction experience! Not only are they full versed in every aspect of construction ,(this is invaluable because you don't have to wait for the dry wall guy to be done before you get the painter, etc.) but they are immaculate and leave everything better than it was before! I wish I could post pictures of the magical Master Bath haven they produced for us, or the fabulous Sunroom. Next plan...a new Living Room with fireplace, that doesn't exist yet! (if I can get them away from our friends, that we recommended them to!) We even get the services of a decorator, so we can plan color and fabric schemes, etc!

It was a pleasure to contract with Four Leaf Restoration, LLC for the installation of a French Drain system in our downstairs family room. Great work ethic, extremely clean and very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend Four Leaf Restoration to anyone looking to correct a dampness issue. These folks are a very hard working crew and very concerned in keeping your house as clean as possible during what can be a very dusty and dirty job.

I contacted Kershaw Property Solutions and had correspondence with the owner Bobby. He was very responsive and was able to answer any questions I had. He and his team were punctual and worked quickly to install an interior door in my home. His team went above and beyond to make sure the quality and finish of the work was top notch. They also came in right on budget, which is important. Will definitely rehire.

We wish we hired Building Leaders to do the renovation that we undertook two years ago - they would have saved us a lot of money, time, and frustration. They honestly reinstilled our faith in the contracting community - we've had several terrible experiences from other contracting companies. This was such different and positive experience, we wanted to share. If you're looking for a contractor who is honest, keeps his promises, who delivers quality outcomes and within budget, and respects your home/personal space -- Building Leaders needs to be considered. They were hired to bring a pretty complex project and design to life. Sami, the owner, did an amazing job partnering with our Interior Designer, Keegan Riotto from Revamp Designs. They successfully completed a 3 month project that included a complete demolition of an unusable space. The scope of work included building of multiple decks, build out and construction of new closets/rooms. They also masterfully installed a stacked stone wall - they did such an awesome job, the stacked stone manufacture has sent a photographer to take photos to showcase in their catalog/websites. Sami and team also installed ~800sq ft of Aztek pavers, completed electrical work to support a complex lifting scheme, roofing work, etc. Bottom line, Building Leaders -- is a very professional, honest, and skilled company that took Revamp's designs and beautifully transformed a once unusable space to an oasis that we're able to use on daily basis. His team was challenged with weather and other issues and they absolutely did an amazing job. One last item to share...those of you who've had renovations or work done on your house while living there - it can be terribly disruptive and stressful when you have the wrong contractor who does not respect the fact that you are living there during construction (we have small children) -- Sami and his team were so respectful and thoughtful in this regard - they took precautions to ensure our home and personal property (and kids) were cared for/safe and they the time to clean up the site EVERY day!! Thanks Building Leaders/Sami, we love our new spaces and appreciate they great work. I highly recommend Sami and his team - honest to work with, competitively priced, stellar craftsmanship, on time and extremely respectful.

Our renovation project was fairly complex and I was very nervous signing up with contractors. we had very limited time to get the project done. I was happy to sign up with Chris as he was very anxious and very much interested to get the project started. Also, he walked thru detailed breakdown of budget which gave us confidence. It went very well with good pace, ahead of schedule. Chris was readily available and very customer friendly to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Due to unforeseen circumstances, ended slightly later than original schedule towards the end like any other major renovation projects. Chris is very knowledgeable and has tremendous experience, knowhow and displayed excellent skill and workman ship. He is very trustworthy and hardworking. Most of the subcontractors hired by him, did excellent job except the plumbing contractor. Will be glad to offer any reference if needed. Thank you Chris.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

How is a mold test done?

Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

  • Swab testing: $200-$300
    • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
  • Air cell testing: $250-$350
    • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
  • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

How does mold remediation work?

Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

  • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
  • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
  • Remove affected building surfaces.
  • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
  • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
  • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
  • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
  • Perform clearance testing.

Remove containment materials.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
